This is the first comprehensive text on its subject to appear since the 1960s. It incorporates classical material with the many significant developments in the field and is the only up-to-date introduction currently available. Introduction to Random Vibrations presents a brief review of probability theory, a concise treatment of random variables and random processes (including normal, Poisson, and Markov processes), and a comprehensive exposition of the theory of random vibrations. It contains...

This volume brings together for the first time John von Neumann's long-out-of-print articles on computer architecture, programming, large-scale computing, and automata theory. A number of significant papers in these areas that were not included in the multivolume John von Neumann. Collected Works (1963) have now been reprinted here. These pioneering articles - written between the mid-1940s and the mid-1950s - are of enduring value not only to computer historians but to computer scientists at...

A vital force in European linguistics and literary scholarship in the 1930s, the Prague School opened up the rich field of semiotics and art. The study of art as the creative use of the sign became one of its principal areas of critical examination, and in this collection of 21 essays this concept of semiotics is brought to bear on a wide range of the arts, including theater, film, poetry, folk art, and painting. The editors are professors in the Department of Slavic Languages and Literature at...

The study of literary style is often regarded as the exclusive province of the literary critic; yet, since verbal and literary expression are types of behavior involving the use of linguistic forms in a cultural context, it is apparent that the linguist, the psychologist, and the anthropologist are also concerned with aspects of verbal and literary style. The question then arises: Will interaction between these diverse disciplines result in a clearer understanding of the nature and...

In this book, Hans Wussing sets out to trace the process of abstraction that led finally to the axiomatic formulation of the abstract notion of group. His main thesis is that the roots of the abstract notion of group do not lie, as frequently assumed, only in the theory of algebraic equations; they are also to be found in the geometry and the theory of numbers of the end of the 18th and the first half of the 19th centuries. The book takes us from Lagrange via Cauchy, Abel, and Galois to Serret...

The crushing defeat of France in the Franco-Prussian War resulted in the emergence of a new regime, which was saddled with the task of governing and reorganizing the seemingly shattered nation. Difficult as this task was for a government lacking in both prestige and authority, it was made even more so by the fact that the defense and domestic stability of France depended upon the continued existence of a large standing army, inherited from the defunct Bonapartist Empire and led by a caste of...

The traditional assumption that stock price changes could in theory be forecast by sufficiently detailed analysis of previous price fluctuations has only recently been found to have little empirical support when examined statistically. Some investigators now conclude that stock price changes are best approximated by classical Brownian motion.

Profoundly influenced by the analyses, of contemporary linguistics, these original contributions bring a number of different views to bear on important issues in a controversial area of study. The linguistic structures and language-related processes the book deals with are for the most part central (syntactic structures, phonological representations, semantic readings) rather than peripheral (acousticphonetic structures and the perception and production of these structures) aspects of language....

Law and legal reasoning are a natural target for artificial intelligence systems. Like medical diagnosis and other tasks for expert systems, legal analysis is a matter of interpreting data in terms of higher-level concepts. But in law the data are more like those for a system aimed at understanding natural language: they tell a story about human events that may lead to a lawsuit. Statements of the law, too, are written in natural language and legal arguments are often arguments about what that...

It presents the central questions, shows how and why they were asked, what the answers were, and how these have led to new...

Never before published in any Western language except in fragments, this classical work of Chinese mysticism is a fundamental _ and fascinating _ source for the study of Taoism (Deism) as belief and as practice.
